According to this article in today’s Guardian, an in-depth survey has determined that only a small minority of FTSE UK businesses (10%) are correctly postured for the coming changes caused by humanity bumping up against the Limits to Growth.

What is even more startling is the finding that the number of businesses that will take a negative hit outnumbers those who stand to gain by almost six to one! The message for the investor and policymaker is loud and clear. It is possible to continue to grow if we change course before the Force 10 storm hits. The rough seas up ahead of us are no place for autopilots or for doing things “like we did in the good old days”.
